What Vegans Eat – Day 1735

First Meal: We take turns cooking in our house. Today, I took over the kitchen and made garbanzo bean flour omelets, filled with a Spinach Ricotta mixture. The seasoned Ricotta was leftover from Gary’s amazing Eggplant dish yesterday.   Second Meal: Borscht is back! I love this soup and look forward to making more soon.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1734

First Meal: Steel Cut Oat and Millet Waffles are the best! Have you tried them? I couldn’t decide what to put on them so I had everything! One with homemade Cashew Yogurt and Raspberry/Mango Sauce, the other with Almond Butter.   Second Meal: Gary De Mattei, REAL, co-founder, is the best vegan chef, hands down.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1733

First Meal: Waffles again? YAY! Gary wanted “Cheerios” Waffles which means our Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffle recipe. He thinks they taste like Cheerios. Cheerios without the glyphosate, because we use organic grains. All the schmears came out: Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, Apricot Butter, Cashew Yogurt and a Raspberry Coulis with chunks of Mango.…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1732

First Meal: We learned a couple of days ago of the death of a dear family friend, Steve. We drove to his funeral this morning. After the service, we were joined by my mom and her friends, Phyllis, Eydie and Sid. No matter what the occasion, it’s always the right opportunity to go to the…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1731

First Meal: Today’s breakfast starts with a juicy, tart Grapefruit.   Next, pasta! Pasta for breakfast. Why not? This gluten-free, brown rice pasta by Tinkyada was made a couple of days ago by Gary, served with his Spicy Marinara.   Second Meal: While our dinner was coming together we munched on Carrots and Celery.  …

What Vegans Eat – Day 1730

First Meal: I had an idea. It was not a good one. We call these EPIC FAILURES! I wanted to try making a waffle from cooked Oatmeal. We had some leftover Oatmeal in the refrigerator. I thought it might work like Smashed Baked Potato Waffles. Nope. They did not cook inside and burned slightly on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1729

Today is election day and I am a poll worker. I got up at 4am to arrive at the poll site by 5am. We typically stay until 10pm. It’s a long day. I wasn’t hungry and made a conscious decision not to bring food with me. I knew I would get breaks and be able…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1728

First Meal: A perfect breakfast! Parfaits. You know that parfait means perfect in French, right. Made with homemade Cashew Yogurt, Blueberries, Raspberries, Coconut, Cacao Nibs, Bananas, all organic. Mm. Served in Waterford crystal makes them even more delicious.   Second Meal: A lovely lunch came together with a fresh Kale Salad served with leftovers, Turnip…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1727

First Meal: Gary treated me to breakfast at home today with a Tofu Vegetable Scramble with my (saved-from-failing) Turnip Cakes on the side.   Second Meal: A fresh Kale Salad was made with a Pomegranate Vinegar Dressing.   Third Meal: Soup again for dinner! This had a Barley Miso Broth with Shiitake Mushrooms, Green Peas,…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1726

First Meal: It’s play day today. We have friends in from Florida that we are seeing for lunch and then my second cousin is in town from Maryland and we will see her and her partner for dinner. Our breakfast was fun. We had the Herbed Okara crackers I had made last night served with…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1725

First Meal: Gary made a special Oatmeal today with Blueberries and an Omega-3 plus sprinkle with Flax Seeds, Cinnamon and Walnuts.   Second Meal: Later in the day I made an “everything in the refrigerator” kind of Vegetable Soup that had cooked Acorn Squash as the featured Vegetable. Squash is great in soup. It gives…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1724

First Meal: BOO! It’s Halloween. Gary and I had struggled for weeks trying to decide what are costumes would be and if we should have a party. In the end we decided not to decide and there’s no party and no costumes. And that’s okay. I had plenty to do in the morning. We had…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1723

First Meal: It’s a big day today. There is a rally in front of city hall to support the vote to ban foie gras in NYC. The NYC Council is voting today and we want to show strong support for the ban in case the opposition shows up. I am recovering from a cold so…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1722

First Meal: Oatmeal is back, and super colorful with Pumpkin Seeds and Blueberries served in this gorgeous dish.   We also added Pears, Flax Seeds and Coconut. It’s been a while since we’ve had this for breakfast. I’ve missed you, Oatmeal!   Second Meal: We are both fighting colds here at home. Nothing sounds better…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1721

First Meal: The last of the Pumpkin Bread has been eaten and enjoyed, today with Almond Butter.   Second Meal: The last of the Cauliflower Potato soup has been eaten and enjoyed!   We also had Sautéed Escarole with Capers. Those were the last of the capers too that were eaten and enjoyed.   And…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1720

First Meal: I bought Dates the other day specifically to make my new Pumpkin Bread recipe with them instead of Brown Sugar. I got everything prepped, spices, Dates, Figs, Walnuts, Pumpkin Purée, Vanilla, Gluten-free Flour and Baking Powder.   I blended up the Dates and Pumpkin. It was not easy because the dates were on…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1719

First Meal: Our house is all stocked up with the good foods we love. Knowing I could make just about anything I decided to create my first Acai bowl. I blended frozen Acai with Bananas and Blueberries, topped it with Rolled Oats, Cacao Nibs, Strawberries and Pears. Let’s do this again!   I was still…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1718

How quickly the week flies by. It’s Friday again, or Mother’s Day, the day of the week that I visit mom. I usually have a list of things to do at her house when I arrive but today I am saturated. My plan is just to visit. No projects.   First Meal: I kept to…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1717

First Meal: I have a lot to do today. I made a quick and satisfying soup with cooked Millet, Shiitake Mushrooms, Red Onions and a little Barley Miso.   Second Meal: I’m on a deadline and working to finish up today. Gary came to the rescue and served me a variation on the Asian Slaw…

What Vegans Eat – Day 1716

First Meal: Gary usually offers to share his morning tea with me, along with his expertly frothed milk. But I usually have my own pot of some green or white tea. Today I accepted, Teeccino with frothed Cashew Milk. This is decadent.   Time to finish the batch of Steel Cut Oats and Millet Waffles…
